Collection Services, UCD Library: Introduction
What is in this Guide?
This guide provides information on the collection services UCD Library offers to academics, researchers, and undergraduates, including ordering books, journal subscriptions, inter-library loans, etc.
What is the Collection Services Unit?
The Collections Services Unit is responsible for the management of all material published after 1930 held in UCD Library. This includes:
- Collection development, or the selection and acquisition of both print and online materials;
- Cataloguing of print and electronic resources to ensure ease of access;
- Decision making on the retention and disposal of materials in our collection.
- Managing and maximising the library’s resources budget
- Participation in relevant national bodies and consortia, i.e. IReL (Irish Research Electronic Library)
Collections Services staff are responsible for selecting, ordering, and processing Library materials at every stage of their lifecycle. We will work with you to help you make the best use of the Library's existing resources and to select the most appropriate collections for your teaching, learning and research needs.
The Collections Services Unit does not look after UCD's special or archival collections. Any queries relating to Special Collections, the National Folklore Archive, or UCD Archives should be directed to the relevant department.
